The result of 45 years’ study of pediatric laryngology, phoniatrics, and bronchology, this book describes 42 different pathological sounds – occurring in different combinations – in 54 different pathological conditions. Uniquely, while recognizing the indispensability of conventional investigation methods – endoscopy, radiology, MRI – the Editors demonstrate the value of perceptive-auditive evaluation and objective acoustic analysis as a complimentary diagnostic tool. With an accompanying DVD, they visually – through spectograms, endoscopic photos, and radiologic or MRI pictures – and audibly demonstrate the acoustic characteristics of the pathological sound phenomena, the different irregular or unusual sounds occurring in, and the characteristic of each respiratory or neuro-developmental disease and disorder. Their coverage of the latest therapeutic options for each disease or disorder renders this book a virtual guide to every aspect of pediatric laryngology. Throughout, the editors demonstrate the value of this complimentary diagnostic and rehabilitation tool for airway obstructions and the various pathological and neuro-developmental anomalies in the pediatric population. The multidisciplinary approach has been deliberate in making the book accessible to pediatricians and speech pathologists, as well as its core audience: otolaryngology-head and neck surgeons.
